If the anticipated tour to England bowls off in July, West Indies players will have to undergo frequent testing for the novel coronavirus.
The United Kingdom has over 200 000 confirmed cases of the virus with close to 36 000 deaths recorded and chief executive officer of Cricket West Indies (CWI), Johnny Grave, confirmed that following ongoing discussions with the England and Wales Cricket Board, it has been agreed to have players examined often for their health and safety amid the pandemic.
“I don’t think they will be tested every day. We will test everyone before they leave, test everyone on arrival and then we will have regular sample testing throughout the period. Medical practitioners will also monitor temperature checks but not full-blown testing,” Grave told NATION SPORT yesterday during a telephone interview.
